Does the officer have a name?

A better question would be which one ran through the red light. Just because the officer was running with blue lights and siren does not give him automatic passage through a red light. It only lets him ask for permission to proceed through the light. If he ran it he is absolutely responsible for all damages.

I see a muscle bound policeman with a litany of tattoos on his arm in that part of town quite often. I wonder if it was him?
